Support the voice of the environmental sciences

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a huge amount of uncertainty across the environmental sector and has impacted organisations in many ways. For some, this has been an opportunity for incredible innovation and adaptation, and leading collaborations can be seen across the sector. However, many charities and learned societies, like the IES, have been hit hard by the current circumstances. 

We are continuing to transition our busy events calendar to an online version, bringing you easily accessible CPD opportunities, expanding our webinar programme to deliver more webinars in 2020 than ever before, migrating all Chartership workshops online and continuing to trial innovative ideas to enhance our membership services. 

We want to maintain this momentum and make sure we provide new, valuable opportunities for our members to help you gain new skills, develop interests and progress in your careers throughout this challenging period. 

We are responding to the needs of our members by enhancing our mentoring scheme and free careers services, developing training opportunities, providing support to those experiencing redundancy, and focussing on enhancing equity, diversity and inclusion across the sector. 

We need your support

Our new Support Us page hosts a range of ways you can support our work including our new online donations platform. 

As a not-for-profit organisation, we receive no government funding and rely fully on the support from our members and other limited funding sources. Without your support we could not make the impact we do with our sector leading projects, research and membership services. Your generosity will allow us to continue our innovative and inspirational support for the well-being of humanity and the environment, now and in the future. 

Every donation is important and valued. Your kind gifts may go towards a variety of projects that support the next generation of environmental scientists, or those that drive systemic change and improvement within the profession, and will contribute to the work we do to further the impact of the organisation and the professionals we represent. 

No gift is too small

By donating to the Institution of Environmental Sciences, we can direct your money to the areas of greatest need. You can donate any amount of your choice through our easy-to-use donation page.

If you can, please consider donating today and helps us support our members and the environmental sector through this difficult time.
